Yankees captain Derek Jeter only managed 18 games in a 2013 season decimated by various injuries including the fractured ankle he accrued in the 2012 ALCS. He is healthy now and has started baseball activities as he prepares for the 2014 season and returning to the starting lineup in New York. 

The Yankees captain hit off a tee in a batting cage and fielded 108 ground balls at the Yankees minor league complex on Monday.

"I don't think about it (the ankle), and that's a good thing,"  "It's good to have a normal offseason and get some work in. Everything is normal now." Jeter was quoted as saying.

Hitting off a tee and fielding 108 grounders isn't much, but it's only mid January and spring training is still a month away so it's encouraging to see him getting out there. It will be interesting to see how well Jeter fairs after barely playing in 2013 and the fact that he will turn 40 during the course of the season.
